ISTANBUL: Turkish prosecutors said on Wednesday there was strong evidence that an Islamic State cell in the southeastern city of Gaziantep carried out a string of bomb attacks culminating in a double suicide bombing which killed more than 100 people in Ankara.

In a written statement, the Ankara prosecutor’s office said digital evidence indicated the Ankara bombers staged the attack to undermine political stability and delay a Nov. 1 parliamentary election.
